Youth Evangelical Fellowship (YEF) was originally founded as apart of Apostolos Campus Ministry (ACM) in 2002 by Dr. David Jang and students from Olivet Theological College and Seminary (OTCS). However in 2003, the organization branched (becoming YEF) and was first inaugurated in New York City, 2009 with students from Colombia University, who were moved by the Holy Spirit to begin meeting for small group bible studies and witnessing Jesus Christ to their fellow classmates.
YEF developed with the focus of reaching out to university students who are thirsty for the Word of God and desiring to continue God’s mission.
By the grace of God, YEF’s mission had reached out to more than 40 countries by 2015 covering most of the continents such as North America, South America, Europe, Africa, Asia Pacific, South East Asia, and South Asia.
“It is like a mustard seed, which, when sown upon the soil, though it is smaller than all the seeds that are upon the soil, yet when it is sown, it grows up and becomes larger than all the garden plants and forms large branches; so that the birds of the air can nest under its shade.” – Mark 4:31-32
YEF’s commission is to raise young generation who love the Cross of Jesus Christ; boldly proclaim His sacrifice and the power of His salvation; and dream together for the Kingdom of God.
YEF firmly believes in international growth and equipping of youth from diverse backgrounds to devote themselves to Jesus Christ and His Great Commission. YEF aims to help young people to passionately embody Kingdom-driven lifestyles.
